Weird Email Problem

Userlevel 1
I've got a weird email problem. When I email a picture to my Yahoo account from my Galaxy S2X that I took while the phone is in a horizontal position, it seems to download okay, but it won't open. It keeps giving me the error message: "The file “20130606_xxxxxx.jpg” could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn’t recognize." However I can send the same file to a different email account and it downloads and opens without any problem so it seems specific to Yahoo. Has anyone ever encountered problem like this?

What happens when you try to download that same email vertically using your Yahoo account?

If I've taken the photo with the phone in a vertical position, as if making a phone call, there is no problem. It downloads and opens easily. If the picture was taken with the phone in a horizontal position, that's when there is a problem.

To update, there must have been a glitch somewhere, possibly with Yahoo email, yesterday. I decided to try to download and open the same pictures today and they all opened up without any error messages. Truly weird.
